  1. Mean effect of vegetable oils on the lipid profile of diabetic mice. Mean value are expressed as mean ± SEM. N = 6 in each group. TC total cholesterol, LDL low density lipoprotein, HDL high density lipoprotein, TG triglycerides. aindicate significant difference compared to controls, p < 0.05, bindicate significant difference compared to other vegetable oils. Total cholesterol, LDL, and LDL were significantly reduced in mice fed on groundnut oil diet only (p < 0.05), while HDL was significantly increased
